If You Want to Send Your Money Far Away

I suggest buying a Smokering from Oomingmak.

An Alaskan cooperative of near 250 women living in remote villages will hand sew this hood-scarf from the “down” of a musk ox and send it to you.

Qiviut is actually an underwool shed yearly by the Alaskan musk ox. It is soft, weighs little, and holds warmth much better than wool. It is a renewable product having few environmental effects.

The co-op ladies have even made a 2 minute video showing the scarf-making process from animal to loom.

If you want a truly unique gift made in the USA, this is it!
